Construction Site Du Jour: Metropolitan & Marcy
This is 2 Marcy Avenue, which is currently a mess, at least, in terms of its fence falling down. This photo is about a week old, and since we took it, most of the fence on Metropolitan Avenue has come down too. It's unclear what's going on with this lot, which is actually the more interesting question. The gas station that had been on this corner was demolished nearly two years ago. Since then, the property has sat empty, a prime location for condos or offices overlooking the turn that drivers make to get on to the BQE. In the meantime, excellent hanging out opportunities or a great spot to go to in order to do whatever away from the unforgiving glare of passing traffic and people. There is absolutely no indication the lot will be developed anytime soon, although the fence is constantly plastered with posters, given that it's a high traffic area.
